Tarkington, Booth: Alice Adams (Illustrated). v1, 14 February 2012
. . . Ultimately, her ambitions are tempered by the realities of her situation, which she learns to accept with grace and style. Alice's resiliency of spirit makes her one of Booth Tarkington's most compelling characters. (Goodreads)
4 full-page illustrations.
I read this many years ago as a young girl, and have less patience with Alice's pretenses now. But she is a likeable character --- her struggle at a large fancy party to keep up a brave front is both funny and full of pathos.
Hope you enjoy it!
